i'd say 45MPG for a 146TI is achievable but 60MPG out of a 2.4 20V still seems impossible for me...
if you look at the fuel economy specs you'd see that they state high 40s or low 50s as common for driving outside town...yes I know, these are not always accurate and almost always could be improved but...not with 10+MPG i'd say...

Official extra urban is 53.3mpg - when you drive very carefully, don't go above 60mph and avoid braking where ever possible (and just back off the throttle instead) then the official figures are quite easily beaten

I don't do it all the time though as the car is fun to drive fast too!

the readings are more accurate when you spend less time idling but even then they're quite a bit out...and it could get as worse as half the claimed MPG by the trip computer if you drive around town only...
if your 2.4jtd 20v wont pull clean from 1100 revs you might want to blank off your egr valve but this will bring up a EML but its worth it i put 5 gallons of diesel in and get between 275 to 300 miles out of that. the secret it never rev above 1500 revs, mine now will pull from 35mph in 6th gear with no smoke. only problem is, it boring way to get from A to B
